EDITORIAL: 3 Reasons Why Nicolas Cage Should Have Played The FLASH

In this editorial I will give you three reasons why Nicolas Cage star of the critically and commercially acclaimed Ghost rider films should have played the Flash instead of Grant Gustin on the CW show.

1. He Has Some of The Greatest CBMs Under His Belt

As many of you know Nicolas Cage has starred in what are perhaps two of the greatest comic book movie of all time called Ghost Rider and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Those two movie have perhaps some of the most powerful scenes in not just comic book movie but in the history of all movies. I mean Seriously who ever came up with the scene where Johnny Blaze is just chilling watching t.v with a glass of jelly beans is a genius. Not only that but the above scene is perhaps the greatest and most respectful to the source scenes in all of cbm history.

2. He Looks and Acts Just Like Barry Allen

Another thing that many of you undoubtedly know is that Nic Cage's best work has been when he plays warm, light-hearted, and heroic characters. Just take a look at the scenes below for proof of his work playing kind-hearted characters.

Now I also know some of you are saying that he looks nothing like Barry Allen from the comics but I have a set of pictures below which will prove to you just the opposite.

Seriously guys can you really tell me that these two people don't share the same warm and inviting smile that the Flash needs. The he even shares the same golden locks that Barry has.

3. He's The Mother F**king NIC CAGE

If there is one thing that convince you all that Cage is deserving is the fact that he is NICOLAS CAGE. I mean no other acto has as much warmth and heroism as Mr. Cage.

So that is the end of my editorial and I hoped I have proven to you all why Nicolas Cage is deserving to play the Flash. So in my parting word I encourage you all to come together and petition Warner Brothers to replace Grant Gustin with the more deserving Nicolas Cgae in the CW's Flash series.

Please tell me this is sarcasm. Because if anyone actually thinks the 2nd Ghost Rider movie was anything more than a sorry, unwatchable pos, then that person needs psychiatric help.

This is clearly a joke, a poorly written, and non funny joke.

The only CBM cage did great was kickass lol no offense the ghost rider films were just bad and then worse when the sequel came.. Although the rider looked better in spirit of vengeance other than that everything with them was like wtf..
Jim Caviezel should play ghost rider.. Maybe

Ghost Rider: SOV was a million times better than its predecessor. No sarcasm.

Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't the last Nic Cage movie that grossed $100k plus Ghost Rider (2007)????

@ Marxman12

That's like saying a turd taste a million times better than toxic waste. lol

Nic Cage should have been the Joker in Batman '89. Not that Jack didn't do a great job, but Cage could have taken it to the next level.
ALmazing - 9/30/2013, 8:39 AM
Nicolas Cage would have made the best Superman ever!!!

@ABLEE337, You forgot Con Air, greatest movie ever made!
